How well does camelina tolerate root zone salinity?
Crops of CS15 camelina and InVigor 9590 canola grown in saline rooting media were evaluated for plant emergence, height growth, grain yield, and oil production. The experiment utilized Canada’s Salinity Tolerance Testing ...
Crop yield response and recovery of nutrients applied as thin stillage in a Black Chernozem
Rapid increase in ethanol production from cereal grain to substitute fossil fuel has resulted also in different types of byproduct associated with its production. One of these byproducts is thin stillage. Thin stillage is ...
Agronomic and economic benefits of fertilizing crops
Operating costs at farm level can be divided into essential, enhancement, maintenance, protection and insurance. Save growth hormones, which are not common in western Canada, fertilizer and better quality of seed are the ...
Effect of soil amended with thin stillage on growth of canola and soil properties in a controlled environment study
A growth chamber study was conducted to evaluate the potential use of thin stillage as a soil fertilizer amendment. Seven treatments; control, 3 thin stillage rates (100, 200, and 400 kg N ha¯¹) and 3 urea rates (100, ...
Urea treatment affects safe rates of seed placed nitrogen in Saskatchewan
Placing urea in close proximity to seed can cause seedling damage resulting in poor crop establishment. Plant densities are often well below the optimum, and plants that do emerge can exhibit poor vigor. Several strategies ...
The economics of potato crop rotations in southern Manitoba
Rapid expansion of the potato industry in Manitoba has led to increased potato production in Manitoba. While the introduction of potatoes into current cropping systems may provide an opportunity for producers to increase ...
Different freezing factors associated with Saskatchewan winters in relation to the viability of Penicillium bilaiae
Survival of Penicillium bilaiae over the winter months is essential for use on fall seeded canola crops. Through a series of freeze experiments it is has been demonstrated that P. bilaiae can successfully survive low ...
Yield and protein of wheat and durum in Brown Soil Zone as affected by long-term tillage system and crop rotation
Three tillage-rotation experiments in the Brown soil zone showed that spring wheat and durum grain yield and protein were affected by tillage system, length of time in tillage system, crop sequence. During the initial 15 ...
Effect of rotation and short-term tillage on soil quality after long-term zero tillage
A field study was established in 2000, near Brandon Manitoba, to determine the effect of tillage and crop on soil physical and biological properties. Most soil physical and biological properties were not affected by tillage ...
Update on fall dormant seeded canola research
